Bob Hoover Obituary
Robert "Bob" Hoover, who lived in Palos Verdes Estates from 1977 until just recently, died early Tuesday morning at the age of 94, ending what was a soaring tale of dreams come true.
Growing up in Nashville in the 1920s and 1930s, Bob Hoover spent hours putting together model airplanes. He'd ride his bike 15 miles just to hang out at the local airfield where he finally was able to piece together brief flight training classes.
"The only thing I ever wanted to do was fly airplanes," Hoover wrote in his 1996 autobiography, "Forever Flying."
